Subject: [Vantage] Mass Update





Vantage 8.03.409C

I am looking to do a mass update to parts and looking for a possible way
to do this without going into each.

I have approximately 1,700 part numbers where I would like to mark the
'Backflush' as true. My common variables are... 1) all Purchased Parts
and 2) all contained to 2 warehouses.

Any options?

Jeff

I am looking to perfrom a mass update on some of our Part Classes to change them all to "stock" items. We are running Vantage 6.1 on a Progress DB and I know that this is possible however, I have no experience with this DB. If anyone can offer any assistance I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you,

Normally I wouldn't suggest going straight to the DB, but this is simple
enough that you'll probably be ok.

Disclaimer: I'm not familiar with the intricacies/requirements of
backflushing. But as long as it's something that can just be checked on
every part with no issues, you should be ok. For example, you can pretty
much always change the description whenever you want; but UOMs can't be
changed as they are referenced in other places. If changing the backflush
status on a part ever gives you an exception like 'can't change backflush
because of X' you'll need a more complex method. (Which I can help you with,
if it comes to that.)

Assuming it's a simple field to change; a bit of 4gl like the following
should do the trick:

FOR EACH Part WHERE Part.Field = "SomeValue" AND Part.OtherField <>
"SomeOtherValue".
ASSIGN Part.BackFlush = true.
END.

I'm not sure if Part.BackFlush is the actual field name, but I'm sure you
know/can find out for yourself.
